From Storm to Sunshine !
It was something to see,a storm front approaching Gloucester early evening from the northwest. Looking like a suspended wave, the front rolled over the city skyline in an impressive show of nature. Rumbles of thunder and a few bolts of lightning(which I didn't catch) added to the show. As it approached it seemed frozen in place for a time then the cloud bank actually started to roll before my eyes! I was expecting Charlton Heston to make an appearance! That was the time to get down off the hill and head home. As soon as I reached the front door the sky opened up!
